KENT were in no position to contemplate going for a target of 371 in 56 overs once Durham had removed both openers without a run on the board.

At tea Kent were 48 for three with 37 overs left and skipper Sam Northeast was unbeaten on 34 after being missed by Paul Collingwood at first slip on ten.

Graham Onions equalled the Durham first-class wickets record of 518, held by Simon Brown since 2002, with his first ball.

Sean Dickson played back and edged to Michael Richardson then Daniel Bell-Drummond went the same way in the next over.

That was bowled by Chris Rushworth, who was out of luck when Northeast edged him past Collingwood's left ear.

Only 21 came off the first 12 overs then James Weighell conceded 20 in his first ten balls before finding a little extra bounce for Joe Denly to guide a catch straight to Keaton Jennings at gully.

Durham batted on for 7.3 overs after lunch, adding 62 runs before declaring on 359 for seven when Mark Wood was bowled by Denly for 24, made off 14 balls.

Tom Latham departed for 119 when he was caught one-handed above his head by the 6ft 6in Zak Crawley at extra cover. Ryan Pringle hit an unbeaten 30 off 23 balls.
